We start the tour in Buenos Aires with a pleasant bike tour of the city. Then to Mendoza at the foot of the Andes with some wonderful wine tasting, exploring the vineyards by bike and also enjoying a spectacular downhill ride in the mid-sierra of the Andes. We then pass through to Argentina's Colonial Northwest, the region of Salta and the Calchaqui Valley with it's amazing desert landscapes, wonderful colonial towns and hospitable people - the results of an ancient indigenous culture, mixed with colonial Spanish heritage. We spend 7 days biking through this region, with its dry spring climate (average 15-22 degrees centigrade), up to an altitude of 3000m.
The next stop is the scenic Humahuaca Gorge, with its fascinating landscape, especially the Cerro de los Siete Colores of Purmarmarca and the ruins of Tilcara.Return to Salta and fly back to Buenos Aires
